0.33 bottle.
Hazy, amber color and a large, thin, off-white head of poor retention. Aroma is very yeasty and spicy, floral and fruity esters feature prominently as well. Taste is sweet, fruity, floral, a tad spicy too - it looses its yeasty character to an extent to be replaced by esters. A medium body, a somewhat creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and weaker than could be expected. Overall the brew is decent and quite drinkable. Would not mind having it more often.

JorisPPattyn (9472) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2004 Pale orange, hazy; slim white ring with some lace. Sweet nose, candi sugar, spicey-peppery. Very sweet taste, lots of coriander, bit soupy. Medium-bodied. Beer is virtually devoid of aftertaste. Made perfectly, more than reasonable aroma, bland boring taste. I wonder if they want to start concurrence the big brewers now, at De Proef. <P> Rerated 9/10/04 Much better impression - especially impressed by the balance of this beer. Balance between hops, malts, orange zeste flavour is great. I have added some points on taste and overall. </P> Brewed for the village Kluizen near Ertvelde

Martinus (4498) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2011
Pale light amber with a cream head which isn’t sticking around long. Aroma of malts, some citrus fruits, and some caramel. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, yeast and only a slight fruitiness, which is rather unexpected given the fruity smell. Dry finish. Rather thin but altogether not an unpleasant beer at all. (from tap @ De Kluizenaar)

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2008
Bottle, 7%. Sweet and spicy aroma, some raisin. Cloudy orange colour, big stable white head. High carbonation. The flavour is quite spicy and nice, unfortunately a bit dry. A little more sweetness would have made much more interesting to me.

330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks 2009) - shared with various - thanks!
Sweet bread pudding with raisins. Decent roasted malts, but very sweet. Sherbet and citrus finish. Sharp and biting. Late finish is very hoppy and crisp, and lasts for ever.
